Where can I find a resource in the Seattle area for a Tier 3 SharePoint job? Installation and configuration at server level, multi-server farm scenarios, service application configuration, web application/site collection creation and maintenance RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am helping Microsoft with a need they have for a contract resource.  Any idea where I can find people for a role such as this? If you have any ideas, please let me know.

    SharePoint Tier 3 Operations Engineer – Long Term V- Contract at Microsoft (Redmond, WA)

    (Sharepoint, SQL, IIS, Windows Server, .NET)

    Team summary:

    The team hosts all custom SharePoint solutions with internal MS orgs, working on things like MSW, ITWeb, FinWeb.  The team hosts, sustains and is responsible for any change/release management, making sure that all the solutions are compatible with the latest versions of SharePoint. Team is 24x7 support. They don’t work with the Global Helpdesk (meaning they manage all their own support).  They are present in Redmond and China.


    Tier III Operations Support: Tech troubleshooting, deployments, patching (IIS, Windows Server, SQL, .NET, networking and Sharepoint 2010).


    A Tier III Operations role involves being able to discuss the planning around custom SharePoint environment implementations, maintenance, upgrades and, when necessary, decommissioning. This would involve a familiarity with IIS, Windows Server, SQL, the .Net Framework, Networking and of course SharePoint 2010 (at a minimum; knowledge of previous versions of SharePoint is also desirable). Experience with installation and configuration at the server level, multi-server farm scenarios, service application configuration as well as web application/site collection creation and maintenance, permissioning, performance and load-balancing within a farm are also desired. Hands-on experience is vital.

    In addition to building and maintaining server farms, a candidate should have the ability to troubleshoot issues, the capacity to multi-task, and good documentation skills. They must be able to handle a variety of issues, and assist the Tier II team in their day-to-day work. Flexible work hours are sometimes required and an ability to be self-motivated and responsible for a high-availability property, as well as collaborating in a team environment. Scripting skills are a plus.
